Ok last stage, here's my team;

Andre Greipel
Vicenzo Nibali
Peter Velits
Arnold Jeannesson
Ramunas Navardauskas
Aidis Kruopis
Rodiger Selig
Nacer Bouhanni
Andrea Guardini.

Not going to win any prizes but as long as I don't see any red arrows that'll do! Good luck all.  3

Andre Greipel
Peter Velits
Marcel Kittel
Peter Sagan
Ramunas Navardauskas
Aidis Kruopis
Rodiger Selig
Nacer Bouhanni
Tony Gallopin

Thats my team, pretty balanced for the sprint, along with 1st and 3rd in the GC, but same no red arrows will do me.

Would be nice if gallopin went for the sprint to consolidate 3rd in GC and White jersey along with Sagan (aiming for points jersey) and Navardauskas to be up there somewhere and would expect Bouhanni, Kittel and Griepel to be up there. Maybe Selig and Kruopis could do something and make top 20.

I've picked Gallopin finally so he'll be rubbish tomorrow. I'd transfer him out if I were you.

I had him for 4 stages in Qatar as I'd picked him out as someone to do something but I got the wrong race. Cost me about 15 places on GC (overall) I think.

Neither of us have had a great time since TDU have we? Still, Qatar and Oman are just down to luck with crashes, punctures and people being run off roads. No real skill in them!!

Got my changes done pretty sharp after stage finished. Ended up with the following:

Kittel
Sagan
Griepel
Galimzyanov

Hayman
Steegmans
Guardini
Sutton
Bouhanni

Lots of fast men for a flat stage so fingers crossed.

I think Cav will win tomorrow, but I've decided to transfer in the 'safe' points - just to try and keep my place in the top 200 (which is my basic aim for each competition this year).

Peter Velits
Peter Sagan
Andre Greipel
Marcel Kittel
Tony Gallopin
Andrea Guardini
Nacer Bouhanni
Aidis Kruopis
Tom Jelte Slagter

Currently my team is
Andre Greipel
Peter Velits
Marcel Kittel
Peter Sagan
Nacer Bouhanni
Tony Gallopin
Andrea Guardini
Baden Cooke
Chris Sutton

I have 1 transfer and 5 points to play with so place safe
Tom Jelte Slagter for Baden Cooke guaranteed 9 points
or risk it
Denis Galimzyanov for Peter Velits loss of guaranteed 9 points and Galimzyanov needs to finish 5th or better to pay off. Stage 1 form says yes, stage 3 form says no.

Unless your in the top 5 i would risk Galimzyanov as he might surprise people otherwise go for the safe bet of 9 points for Velits.

Anyway, back to subject in hand. It looks like I've actually done pretty ok on the final stage if the initial results are anything to go by  4

Following @antmccrossan on twitter - he's out there commentating. Admittedly it's the initial results. But it's a good indicator  4

But! I just carried the team over from Qatar and really wasnt paying too much attention. I hate to sound ungrateful to Dave and company, but my heart wasn't really in these races....

Gkam, thanks for the race updates this morning! You're a pretty reliable guy!  1

Yeah i can be, others will tell you otherwise though, Some of my tips for the Grand Tours come up trumps aswell, I normally give tips the day before a stage when it comes to the Giro, TdF and Vuelta incase you weren't around last year, look out for them, they can earn you some huge points  26

Stage 1 and 6 were slow to update, the rest of the ASO website has not been to bad, without Ant out in Oman, this tour would have been a waste of time

whoot!

Took the gamble on Denis Galimzyanov & Baden Cooke paid off with Denis's 4th. (gained all of 3 points)

So 1, 2, 4, 5 9 & 13, GC 3 Points 1, 2, 3, 4 Youth 1 + Sagan 2nd in intermediate sprint

So a reasonable 166 points for the day, hope to see a green arrow on the overall for me today, most the peeps ahead should of scored in the 140 range
